(AFP) US secretly probes financial records to track terrorists

(AFP) US lawmaker demands criminal probe of New York Times

(AP) Argument against report puzzles NYT editors

(AFP) Bush assails ‘disgraceful’ terrorism banking revelations

(AFP) US House backs Bush, not New York Times on secrecy

(AP) NYT: Bank program not news to terrorists


Now Let Me See: Since 9/11, Bush has been telling us that we are tracking the terrrrrists by tracking the money, a perfectly legitimate and reasonable way of investigating them. The NY Times revealed he was actually telling the truth for once, using perfectly legitimate and PUBLICLY AVAILABLE means. The LA Times and Wall Street Journal, both also following the story, break their own versions. Bush and Cheney calls the Times disgraceful and some ass in the House accuses the paper of treason and the House votes a non-binding slap at the Times for revealing the big non-secret secret. So why the hubbub? Is it simply Republican grandstanding to please the conservative base before the ’06 elections? Or is there something NON-legit about the probe the Times revealed? Gee, if you can track moneys to terrorists, it wouldn’t be hard to track moneys to liberal causes, track investments, and other transactions that it would be illegal to use the power of the government to trace…Or am I just paranoid about this administration that abuses its power every opportunity it gets?

(Reuters) Bush unaware of Dubai ports deal before approval

(Reuters) Bush defends ports deal, threatens veto

Lemme see, the idiot-in-chief, who’s never vetoed a single piece of legislation, has threatened to veto any legislation blocking a deal that he wasn’t even aware of delivering the running of US ports by a country that gave material aid to the alleged 9-11 hijackers (if you believe the official story). 9-11 families are mad. Congress is mad. Arab-Americans think that the reaction is anti-Arab (well, yes it is, but DUH!). However the icing on the cake is from the (ahem) notoriously lefty NEW YORK DAILY NEWS (hahaha)! Breaking news update: Bush shrugs off objections to port deal–WASHINGTON – The Dubai firm that won Bush administration backing to run six U.S. ports has at least two ties to the White House…One is Treasury Secretary John Snow…Snow was chairman of the CSX rail firm that sold its own international port operations to DP World for $1.15 billion in 2004, the year after Snow left for President Bush’s cabinet. The other connection is David Sanborn, who runs DP World’s European and Latin American operations and was tapped by Bush last month to head the U.S. Maritime Administration.

Did anyone get my Toot-toot Tootsie reference?
